Anyone depositing Marriott Grand Chateau with Interval International?

I've been thinking about depositing my 2007 week for the Grand Chateau with Interval International.

I called a few times to check on whether any Accomodations Certificates would be awarded. Initially I was told that the decision had not been made as it was a new resort and to try again later. In response to my most recent call, I was told that the developer has been depositing enough weeks so there is no need to award ACs.

I was also told that the decision of whether and for which weeks to award ACs is made annually.

Does this make sense that the developer is depositing weeks?

I am now unsure as to whether I should deposit my 2007 week or try to rent it.

Yes. Developers often have unsold weeks during the construction and sales period. The developer (Marriott) must do something with the annual use related to those weeks or the use will be wasted.

Marriott might rent some of those weeks on its own and judge that other weeks would generate more income by selling them to II for use as exchanges, Getaways or whatever other use II decides upon.
